Hi folks, I have come to the realization these last few weeks that I have really grown tired of the sound of synthetic strings and love the sound of unwound gut especially on the A&D strings. I find that the synthetic strings, as hard as I try do not get the kind of "singing" quality high up on the A-string that I have gotten when trying unwound gut. I have however had bad experiences in the past with unwound gut due to the fact I think I bought 2nd rate gut strings, and also due to the strings probably not being as well manufactured these days with the prevalence of synthetic strings. I tried Pirastro Chorda strings and they kept going out of tune every two seconds even after I had stretched them. Do any of you know of a good place to order gut strings from? Someone told me a string maker out in Oregon by the name of Damian Duglogecki is quite good, anyone have experiences with his strings? Thank you for your help.
